On episode 121 of American Sex Podcast, Sydney Leathers talks about her fallout from the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal. In what was one of the biggest political sex scandals of the last decade Sydney was cyberbullied, hounded by the media, isolated from family and friends, shunned by members of the adult industry, and slut-shamed by her own therapist. She tells us how she eventually came out on the other side and how this incident unexpectedly improved, and perhaps even saved, her life. We examine why we repeatedly fail to consider how power dynamics, age, and the men themselves in sex scandals; deconstruct the common narrative that women are evil temptresses; and reflect on what may have been different if it happened post #MeToo. Sydney also gives us her pick for the 2020 presidential election and tells voters what to watch for regarding issues impacting sexual freedom and sex work when evaluating candidates.
